GSP’s Secret Weapon for Beating Carlos Condit: Dan Hardy… Wait…What?

Georges St-Pierre might want to re-examine his choice of training partners for his upcoming UFC 137 bout with Carlos Condit on October 29. You would think he would be picking the brain of his friend and teammate Rory MacDonald, who was seven seconds away from upsetting the former WEC welterweight champ at UFC 115 before getting TKO’d by “The Natural Born Killer.” Instead, “Rush” is thinking outside the box and has brought in Dan Hardy, who hasn’t won a fight since 2009, to help him prepare for the only guy to have knocked “The Outlaw” out. Makes sense, right?

(“Don’t do this, Georges.”)

(“Or this, Georges.”)

(“But if you do, make sure you don’t do this, Georges.”)

Maybe he’s using some kind of new age reverse psychology or maybe the concept of employing mind games (like when Hardy went to train with Matt Serra for his UFC 111 bout with St-Pierre) is somehow lost in translation with the UFC welterweight champ. Whatever the reason for bringing him into his camp, St-Pierre seems to think it will help, so who are we to judge? We hear Jon Jones is bringing in Brandon Vera to help him get ready for Rashad.

I love those who mock GSP...only to look foolish when he wins and retains his title because he is the chess master of mma.To the homophobes who cast aspersions about his sexual orientation say it to his face looser.

^ LOL, I love ya Danga but that shit was priceless

Sorry Danga, but the tides seemed to be shifting against you, and I just go with the flow.

GSP bringing Dan Hardy in to improve his game = CP bringing Danga in to improve the articles

Dan hardy has been bought in to show GSP how to fully interact with Bruce buffer during the introductions, watch for GSP to really put some moves on during Buffer's intro of him

From what I remember from the Conduit v hardy fight, they where pretty similar and both swung for the knockout in the exact same way but Hardy was a little less accurate. So Hardy is there to emulate Conduit, no?

hardly any mma fighter just uses one training partner for a fight, he more than likely brought hardy in to get his take on how condit fights, so he can craft his training around that

Maybe GSP has um.....more than one training partner? I agree though...GSP should have flew Rory MacDonald in from next door. Right.

P.S. Danga sux ass

Everyone knows that Gay SP is into bad boys with Mohawks.

Nice try though.

Not my article. I sign mine to recieve the proper hate.

GSP said he wanted to bring Hardy in to help him with his wrestling. After seeing that sick double leg Hardy used on Lytle who wouldn't?
LOKI- September 28, 2011 at 12:18 pm
He's an agressive striker whos allergic to wrestling, makes perfect sense to me. And somebody has to have a personallity for the countdown show.
This Captcha shit sucks by the way...goodbye for another couple of months.
Me likey- September 28, 2011 at 12:01 pm
i am sure hardy is coming to train with gsp for help in his game and not to boost gsp's. captcha was a racial slur and a picture of a stapler.

Great move by CP bring Danga on board though. Now, any unsigned article that has flat humor and gaping holes in logic can be attributed to him. He's the perfect scapegoat.
Jugger- September 28, 2011 at 11:51 am
Danga, you stinker. Your sense of humor is... interesting.

Perhaps Dan realizes that as a Brit, he lacks wrestling partners that can help him grow so he asked GSP if he could come train with his team. And GSP is saying it will be fun having him around. Just a thought.

Perhaps your right though.

Sounds like GSP finally met up with Nick Diaz and got ahold of some good stuff. I imagine it went like this:
GSP: Hey Nick, nice to finally see you! Why did you miss the press conferences?
Nick: You wanna know why? Here, take a hit of this.
GSP: Whoa, dude, that is the shit! Fuck press conferences, can I have some?
Nick: Sure.

im pretty sure GSP wants to have his chin tested this fight, maybe he intends to get his ass beat for 4 rounds then pull an Anderson Silva and choke out Condit from the bottom, just to prove to his haterz that he is resilient ...oh yeah....first!
